The most severe snowstorm this season and worst bliz
zard in two years to rake the University is slated to end
this morning, according to the U.S. Weather Bureau.
Temperatures of five through 10 degrees are predict
ed for the next 24 hours in the aftermath of a 30 mile an
hour northerly wind which howled through Lincoln last
With six inches of snow reported Monday noon and
four through six more expected to fall during the night,
Chancellor's Assistant James Pittinger said Monday eve
ning that "as of now he saw no reason to call off classes
for Tuesday."
"Our final decision to be made Monday night will de
pend not on the number of off-campus students who can
not reach the campus but on the number of faculty who
can't get through to teach those students who can reach
the classroom," Pittinger said.
Snow Removal
"We have had considerable trouble with the attitude
of people who drive cars in relation to removing the snow
from parking lots," said Charles F. Fowler, director of the
division of buildings and grounds.

Program Changes
Await Approval
By Wendy Rogers
A number of proposals for program
changes in Teachers College are now awaiting
action by the college faculty.
Topping the list of proposals is the recom
mendation for a change in the general require
ments for the Bachelor of Music in Educaton,
Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Bachelor of Science
This nronosal has been
made by the Teachers Col
lege National Council for the
Accreditation of Teacher Ed'
ucation steering committee
No proposal has been made
at this time for a change in
the requirements for a Bach
elor of Arts degree m Edu
cation, according to Norman
Thorpe, assistant dean.
The committee recommen
tiations are as follows:
The English composition
requirement of 6 hours will
usually be met by earning
credit in English B, 1, and
2 (6 hours), or 3 and 4 (6
Under the humanities re
quirement of 9 hours, selec
tions will usually be made
from at least two fields. Not
less than 6 hours will be chos
en from the historical, criti
cal, theoretical courses in
art, dance, music, speech
and dramatic art, philosophy
(other than logic), and litera
ture (English or foreign lan
guage). The remaining hours
may be selected from other
courses in art, dance, music,
speech and drama.
The physical education,
military, naval, or air sci-j
ence requirement will be 4
Selections for the social
sciences requirement of 9
hours will be made from one
of the following laboratory
sciences: astronomy, biolo
gy, botany, chemistry, earth
science, geography (61 and
62), geology, physics, physiology-public
health, or zoology.
Selection for the 6 hours of
elective choices will be made

All 50 States

Latest enrollment figures
show that all 93 Nebraska
counties, all 50 states and 51
countries are represented by
students at the University, ac
cording to Dr. Floyd Hoover,
Lancaster County leads all
Nebraska counties with a total
of 2,572 students. Next is
Douglas county with 393 stu
dents. Following the Lincoln and
Omaha student totals is the
one from Hall County of 191.
Dodge and Gage counties tie
for fourth place both totaling
166 students. Sixth place goes
to Scottsbluff county with 150

Added to the recommenda
tion was the statement:
"Since one of the purposes of
the general requirements is
to secure breadth of prepara
tion, not specialization, the
student will usually be per
mitted to apply not more
than 6 hours of the general
requirements toward a teach
ing major or area of subject
matter specialization, and not
more than 9 hours toward a
teaching minor."
A proposal which has been
approved by the Department
of Secondary Education and is
now in the hands of the Course
of Study committee would give
the student teacher in both
University High School and
in public schools a half-day
experience instead of a one
hour class period.
According to Thorpe, pro
ponents of the idea feel sec
ondary student teachers
would have a better chance
to see the broader aspect of
school operations than they
do now.
The three general aspects
oi me student teacner s ex
perience would then include:
Responsibility for teach
ing one class in their major;
Responsibility for assist
ing in a class in the minor
or a different level of the
major. (Adjustments in some
cases would be made.)
Responsibility for work
ing with students outside
class, such as helping with
extra-curricular activities.

as a sponsor.
Other proposals by the De
partment of Secondary Edu-
tion which are now in the pre
liminary stages are for the
revision of the total program
of secondary education pro
fessional courses, and for a
"fifth year" program for
graduates of colleges other
than Teachers College, such as
the College of -Arts and Sci
ences. The department is also con
sidering a proposal dealing
with special preparation for
junior high school teachers.

65-61 come-from-behind bas
ketball win over Notre Dame
on the NU maples last night.
The 2,000 Husker fans who
braved the cold, snowy night
witnessed a tense battle,
spiced with some clutch per
formances from several Ne
braska cagers.
Nebraska's number one tor
pedo in the battle was Swett,
6-1 senior guard, who re
turned to the Husker lineup
after missing two games due
to a bad back. The fiery floor
general came out of traction
and played with a heat pack
to direct the Scarlet to their
second win of the season
against two losses.
Swett kept the Huskers alive
with several key steals and
shots, scoring 10 points, and
guided the Husker floor at
tack which came to life in
the second half.
